I was suggested making a journal of my octopus, so here we go! I'm getting my first octopus in about 2 months as I just got my aquarium up and running. The species isn't confirmed yet, but there is a high chance it'll be a vulgaris (and if it is a vulgaris, it's most likely from Bali according to my LFS). Anyways, this will be a pre-octopus post so not really much interesting. Gonna leave a few pics of my aquarium system. Got myself 3 cleaner shirmps, 3 fire shrimp, 1 hermit crab that ate 2 of my snails, now only 4 snails, 2 clownfish as well as an imperator fish My sump system The back and the overflow Using this neat little box here as overflow. I will have to cut the top of my aquarium to fit it in because right now the lid is laying on top of it. I'm aware that I also need to build caves for him, but I'll get to that later on. The only 2 pipes that take in water is the circulation pump to the left on the first pic, but the holes on it are so small that I'm not gonna worry about it unless I see it starting to chop up my octopus. The other one is the overflow where I've put a sponge, but will have to "lock" it there so Arthur doesn't rip it out and go down to the sump. Also the lid will obviously have to be secured, but thats alright, I can fix that. The only thing I'm not sure how to fix is the fluorescents as they would be on the inside of the aquarium. Will this be problem?
